About Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)
Endovenous Laser Treatment is a potent treatment against vascular diseases, yet it is also minimally invasive. Many professionals, by far, consider Endovenous Laser Therapy as the gold standard in Varicose Vein treatments.

Who Needs Endovenous Laser Treatment?
If you suffer from symptoms like :
- Bulging veins raised above the skin surface.
- Red or blue web-like spider veins close to the skin surface.
- Pain or heavy feeling in legs.
- Cramps or restless feeling in legs.
- Increased pain after being in a standing or sitting position for a long time.
How Is It Performed?
The procedure is relatively simple; the patient lies on a bed, our specialized doctors begin by creating a precise ultrasound map of the leg. A local anesthetic is administered into the leg to numb the discomfort and pain.
After the target vein is determined, a small incision is made. A thin fiber is inserted within the leg into the target vein. The fiber is specialized as it has laser emitting properties.
As the laser fiber reaches the target area, laser light comes out of the tip of the fiber and enters into the walls of the vein. The laser light heats up the vein walls causing a contraction of the affected vein.
This triggered contraction ultimately causes the problematic vein to close off permanently. The blood which was stuck in the vein re-routes itself towards healthier veins. The re-routed blood often goes into the veins deeper in the legs. After the procedure is complete, the Varicose Veins disappear.
The superficial and drained Varicose Vein eventually dies off and is absorbed by the body. Endovenous Laser Treatment recovery time is low. It is recommended to wear compression stockings for lasting cosmetic results.
